Ann Arbor News, March 4, 1953
An author nowadays does more than just write a book. He also autographs copies and chats with the public. All this Prof. Alan Seager did yesterday. Seager (right) is shown here discussing his new novel, "Amos Berry," with Mary C. Murray, Literary College senior from New York City, and Bob Marshall, local book seller, at an autographing party. Prof. Seager is a member of the University's English department.
